This brings back to mind something that happened to me yesterday. I went to my local post office to send out a coin I sold on eBay. The postage came to $3.03. I gave the guy behind the counter a five dollar bill and he asked if I had any change.


I told him that I did not have any change, which was true. He began to go on about how I should make sure that I have change when I come to the post office, especially on a Monday. I had no idea what he was talking about and I know from having to deal with him in the past that he is a complainer so I paid him no mind.


Anyway he gave me my change and I left. After I got home I went to put the change he gave me into a change holder I keep on my desk and noticed that two of the quarters looked white. Sure enough he had given me two 1964 silver quarters!


Before this I had not received silver in change in probably six or seven years!


I must admit that I felt great satisfaction in the thought that after having to hear his complaining at lest I got paid! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

This is precisely why I don't like SBAs! I had a few sitting around, and I knew that I could easily spend them as quarters, so I took them to the bank with my last deposit, and I felt bad for the kid, who was probably 18 or younger, one of those High School programs for after school jobs, and he kept counting and counting and finally a little embarrassed, he said, "sir, I'm sorry but you are $3 short." So I quickly pointed out his error, and he looked closely at them and the clouds of confusion parted! So, if a bank teller, presumably trained in the intricacies of our currency has problems, imagine what the poor clerk at McDonalds goes through!
